This cockroach was found in New Zealand, too. My friend said that it smells like banana. And it can curl to a letter "C" when it was in danger.

According to the guide book I purchased from NZ long time ago, first species is Drymaplaneta semivitta.

The adult and nymph in the second part might not be a same species by the way. Nymph appears to be Celatoblatta sp. whereas adult appears to be something in different genus (maybe an undescribed Parellipsidion sp?)

Last one is Platyzosteria novaeseelandiae.

Platyzosteria novaeseenlandiae now in Maoriblatta genus?

Something interesting about New Zealand, but not about cockroaches I think.
